DESCRIPTION

 

This vehicle is an AMX-10P equipped with the GIAT TS 90 turret, armed with a new high performance artillery firing a high-speed anti-tank projectile. Its powerful artillery firing a hollow charge of projectile at the initial speed of 1000 m / s makes it an ideal machine for the anti-tank combat in all its forms. It can also be used as a reconnaissance vehicle or as an infantry support ship. Four infantrymen can sit in the rear compartment accessible by the wide rear.

 

HISTORY BACKGROUND

The AMX-10 PAC 90 is a fire support and anti-tank variant of the AMX-10P Infantry Fightinf. Its production began in 1979. This vehicle is in service in France, Brazil and possibly other countries. This fire support vehicle is designed to work alongside major battle tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.

 

At the time of his introduction, he was able to take the anti-tank fight. However, by today's standards, his armament is too fast to knock out a modern MBT. It was also intended to serve as a reconnaissance and support vehicle for the infantry.

 

The aluminum armor of this firing vehicle provides total protection against small arms and artillery shrapnel. The front armor supports 14.5 mm heavy machine gun shells. The vehicle has an NBC protection system. This fire support vehicle is equipped with a TS-90 turret armed with a high-speed 90mm GIAT CS-90F-4 rifled barrel.

 

Fires HEAT, HE-FRAG, APFSDS and smoke lamps. The round APFSDS penetrates an angled 120 mm armor plate at a distance of 1500 m, while the round HEAT enters a 320 mm armor. The combat load includes 30 rounds for the main gun. Twenty of them are stored in the turret and are ready for use. The remaining cartridges are stored inside the hull. The secondary armament consists of a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun.

 

The AMX-10 PAC 90 has a crew of three, including the commander, the gunner and the driver. In addition, it provides accommodation for four troops at the rear of the hull. These troops act as a protection or reconnaissance team. These four troops land by the rear doors.

The hull of the AMX-10 PAC 90 is similar to that of the infantry fighting vehicle. The engine is located at the front of the hull, on the right side.

 

This fire-fighting vehicle is powered by the Hispano Suiza HS 115 multi-fuel diesel engine, producing 280 hp. The AMX-10 PAC 90 is fully amphibious.

 

On the water, it is propelled by rotating its tracks. Two jets of water have been proposed as an option. These were used on vehicles, operational with the navies. The maximum amphibious speed on the water is 2 km / h on rotating runways and 8 km / h with water jets.

+1.  This would be an awesome TD.  

 

I had no idea that Robbaz's turret APC was a real tank.  

Spoiler

I highly doubt it. The AMX-10RC doesn't and it's essentially the same turret with just a weaker gun. However it also had Night Vision Devices.

It's basically the same tank as the AMX-10RC but in TD version rather than scouting vehicle.

nope :

the turret (and the gun) on that tank comes from the ERC Sagaie, not from amx 10 C/RC program. This doesn't mean that it have stab though. In fact this same turret was fitted on various vehicles, tracked or wheeled (VBC 90, ERC 90, AMX 10 PACK 90), just like the TML 105 (amx 10 C/RC, CV90105 TML, Vextra 105), or the turret of AML90 (Lohr RPX 90).

 

I voted for Premium since it's only used by an other country and whith similar performance with have the ERC 90 Sagaie :

I don't think France ever adopted it as it was an export vehicle (I think Singapore, Indonesia, and a few other counties adopted it) but I think it would be a solid premium tank for the French TT. I think premium would be the best option because we have the MARS 15 and hopefully we will get an ERC-90 Sagaie. Premium is important as France is lacking somewhat in that department. Regardless where it is, hope to see! +1

 

Edit:

Maybe if this gets implemented, we could see the AMX-10P IFV since they use the same chassis xD
